NAEYC supports research efforts and other initiatives from individuals and outside organizations that advance the early childhood profession and the young children it serves. Hello's Code of Conduct requires that individuals who want to use Hello to disseminate surveys or recruit research/interview subjects need to have these requests approved by NAEYC. These requests should be submitted through this form and will be considered by NAEYC on a case-by-case basis. If approved, NAEYC will disseminate the research request or informational report through an appropriate NAEYC channel, which might include a NAEYC newsletter, HELLO or an interest forum. Following are approved requests.My name is Lyn Schaefer and I am a doctoral student in educational sustainability at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. My dissertation is titled "Perceived Influences of Significant Life Experiences on Early Childhood Educators' Teaching Practices." As part of my research study, I am interviewing educators to determine what influence your early experiences had on your current teaching practices. The interview (lasting approximately a half-hour) will take place via Zoom, Teams, or Skype whichever is most comfortable for you. If you would prefer to respond to the interview questions on paper rather than a virtual interview, I have attached a survey link. https://uwsp.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2rci2ah5rl73snc
Your responses will remain anonymous. If you have any questions or are interested in participating in an interview, please contact me at email@example.com. I thank you in advance for your help.
